Tai Chi Tuishou – Push Hands Lesson 6

Push Hands lesson 6

This is one of my favorite push hands videos so far, because here we start to see the previous lessons pulled together into one action.  In other words in this Push Hands lesson 6 video that Ian calls  “Four Hands”, we really see the first exercise where all four energies described in earlier videos are now integrated into one exercise.

Don’t be intimidated by the detail of these instructions; it looks like the instructor just wants us to thoroughly understand the movements.  By the end of this lesson, everything ties together into a seemingly smooth, easy, effortless movement.  However, now that you understand all the thought and concentration that’s happening behind the scenes, you can truly appreciate how active the brain is while concentrating on this exercise.



Know someone who wants to learn Tai Chi?  Or someone who would like to learn more about Tai Chi for self defense?  Please share this post and let’s get the word out there about Tai Chi!
